Scott Cunningham's "Cheers for Fears" takes a less personal approach to the field of victory. The motive of our false face is original, yet keeping within the theme of Mystery Inc's usual targets. Cunningham deserves a definite "Rah!" for researching the method of the criminal's sabotage. While Cunningham's story is more plot-driven, he's still attentive to the Gang's characterization. There's a funny scene shared early between Shaggy and Scoob. The Gang in disguise is quite hilarious, and putting Scooby among their disguise is absolutely inspired zaniness.

The menace drawn by Robert Pope is an amusing combination of Him and the design of the Powerpuff Girl. The entity works as a mascot as well as a flame-inducing threat to pom-poms. The jokes in this one creation are many. The phrase Powerpuff Girls is a play on the phrase Powder Puff Girls--which is synonymous with cheerleaders. Him is essentially attacking Powder Puff Girls; or rather Him is still attacking the Powerpuff Girls.[1]
